A man who absconded from Hollesley Bay last week has been recaptured.

Oliver Uren, 22, failed to return to the open prison last Friday afternoon.

Suffolk Constabulary were informed this morning Uren had been detained at Walworth Police Station in London.

Uren is serving a six-year sentence for robbery and was due to return to the Suffolk prison by 3.30pm on Friday after being given temporary leave.

He called to say he had been admitted to hospital but a spokeswoman for Suffolk police said that was checked and “appeared to be untrue”.
